I commend the hon. Member's tireless commitment to his constituents on this issue. I have seen for myself the issues at Walleys Quarry, and I share his concerns.

We are taking action through emissions monitoring and sharing our data with the UK Health Security Agency, which is providing expert public health advice. We are firmly holding the operator to account in delivering continuous improvements for the local community.
